|'Meet Corliss Archer' - Male Ego|
Episode of the 1954-1955 sitcom "Meet Corliss Archer" called 'Male Ego'. This episode is slightly ahead of it's time; Whether that's a good or bad thing is up to you to decide. The cast mainly did New York stage work, despite the distinctly "TV for those who love TV" feel of the show. Indeed, Ann Baker hardly did any other TV work after this, despite obviously being a good actress. Mary Brian was a former silent film star.
